As you can imagine, shipping a TV or appliance can be very delicate. We have partnered with delivery companies that specialize in delivering oversized items to ensure your product arrives safely. However, there are still very rare occasions when the television or appliance may be damaged during transit. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT YOU INSPECT THE PRODUCT FOR DAMAGES BEFORE THE DRIVER LEAVES. Accepting delivery indicates there is no physical damage. If the product is found defective for any reason other than shipping damage, the repair will be covered per the manufacturer's warranty. Once the product arrives, we ask that you:
- INSPECT THE PRODUCT. If there is damage to the product, then refuse delivery and ask the driver to return the product to us.
- On HDTVs, we highly advise that you keep the product packaging for 30 days in case of a return or exchange.
- If you are unsure what to do, please call Customer Service at 866-387-9973 while the delivery driver is there.
